The School of Humanities and Sciences (H&S) is the center of a world-class liberal arts education at Stanford University. H&S encompasses 23 departments—from Art and Art History, English, and History to Economics, Mathematics, and Biology—as well as 23 interdisciplinary programs. As the university’s largest school, H&S serves as the foundation of a Stanford undergraduate education no matter which discipline students pursue as a major. Graduate students work alongside world-renowned faculty to pursue and shape foundational research that leads to breakthroughs and discoveries that shed new light on the past, influence the present, and shape the future. Together, faculty and students in H&S engage in inspirational teaching, learning, and research every day.

Founded in 1974, the Michelle R. Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford University has put research into action by inspiring innovative solutions that advance gender equality. Launched when women professors were "firsts" in their positions, the Institute's work today engages faculty and students from Stanford University's seven schools and beyond. The Institute operates as an incubator for collaboration, engaging diverse groups of experts and scholars to identify and tackle the next big questions related to gender equality. For decades, its ground-breaking research—both its in-house research and the interdisciplinary gender research it funds—has effected lasting change.

To accelerate progress and advance knowledge, the Clayman Institute builds upon its remarkable legacy and continues to educate and inspire new generations of feminists in its commitment to making the future equal and just for all people. We empower students and scholars in three key ways:

• Conduct and invest in gender research
• Mentor students and scholars through fellowships and internships
• Inspire, translate, and amplify gender scholarship

Our vision for the future is one in which all people—women, men, girls, and boys—will have their contributions valued and voices heard. Visit our website to learn more.
